Green Built Alliance debuts new 5K in Asheville
Green Built Alliance presents the 1st Annual Earth Day 5K to help reduce our community’s carbon footprint!
This fun event will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2023 and start at Carrier Park, 220 Amboy Road in West Asheville. 5K Race begins at 8:00am with a 1 Mile Fun Run starting at 8:05am. The top 3 male, female, and overall 5K runners will receive prizes, including a medal and a local tree donated by Asheville Greenworks.
Team Sundance consists of Adam Reda and Ben Charles. Adam is one of our Renewable Energy Consultants and Ben is a Designer, primarily for residential solar and radiant heating systems. We wish both of them and all runners a great race!
All proceeds from event will go towards creating a clean energy future through Green Built Alliance’s carbon offset program, Appalachian Offsets. This is a local carbon offsetting opportunity that allows community members’ offsets to go toward renewable energy projects for Buncombe County schools or other nonprofit organizations. The next Appalachian Offsets project in the works is for the installation of a PV system on the downtown Asheville United Way building.
